Want to combine Hydra and Zotero but not going to make it into the most recent Mellon funding round. Going to submit during the next window of November or December and add this as an item when they get there.
ORCID grant by Notre Dame:
Sent out the proposal draft to the Hydra Partner's listsrv yesterday afternoon. Would appreciate it if people took a look at it. Looking for two categories of support for the project as well:
Those who can contribute code at some point during the project's creation.
Those who intent to use the end result of the proposal. By having a list of other institutions that would use it, they can demonstrate that their proposal being accepted would bring in a large portion of the Hydra community.
Progress on Partner Meeting action items
Standing Community TODOs
Next Partner meetings
September at Penn State. Two parallel tracks:
5 days of code shredding (9/16-20). Focus on gemification.
There is a page up for the code shredding for candidates on what to work on there.
Shared possible IR for Notre Dame,UVa, Northwestern, and Indiana will generate some direction and topics for the code shredding. (See Notre Dame update by Rick for more info on that project).
Reminder on rooms! Atherton is basically sold-out but still has a few available under the Hydra Block (one must enter the code in their website as the corporate rate to see the rooms). Additionally, there is a game on September 21st, so the Atherton is sold out for Friday night (ie. likely will wrap-up mid-day on Friday and expect people to leave then).
2.5 days of Strategic Planning (9/16-18).
Decided to put out a call to the list for topics. That email by Richard Green has already been sent out.
Bess asked about a potential Dev Ops track at this meeting. It was decided to instead do planning for a potential Dev Ops track at the Worldwide Hydra Connect event.
December event: Worldwide Hydra Connect meeting.
The results of the Doodle poll were emailed out. The venue at the University of Oregon is heavily booked though. They may have December 16 - 18th available. There are dates in January but all of them would have to be over the weekend as the space is used for courses during the week. There were no objections if this meeting needed to happen using a weekend. The end result of the discussion was to email out the following two Doodle polls about institution attendance to figure out the best option of the below:
December 16 - 18th at Oregon (assuming the space is indeed available then).
A set of dates in January for UCSD in San Diego possibly. Need to contact them to see what their availability is like for that timeframe.
2014: regional Hydra event in UK/Ireland (same time as LDCX?)
Likely next Spring for an event. Possibly UK or Ireland? No real details still. Will use the September meeting for some face-to-face ability to bounce around ideas.
Pattern for other Partner meetings
Fall Hydra Camp update by Mark Bussey:
4-day camp, October 1st - October 4th, Case Western Reserve University.
No exact pricing yet but will send out a notice to the partners / tech list very soon (possibly later today).
As a 4-day camp, will be a general type of beginner camp through the whole technology camp.
Mark will be a faciliter and they are looking into getting Adam Wead to join him.
Pre-conference workshop similar to the one done at OR2013? Bess will be attending for a talk on Geospatial data and Hydra and said she could do an afternoon session (4-hours). Would like help from others if they plan to attend. Plan is to see if it is possible to still get on the schedule as it is quite late to get space and find a slot to hold this. Mark Bussey may attend to help if this workshop becomes a reality.
Rick asked about Hydra for Managers session. He said he might be able to facilitate and someone will look into this possibility.
